    Harris County authorities say surveillance video helped them track down a man accused of slashing tires in a Houston area neighborhood.

    Harris County authorities are trying to determine why a man walked through a suburban Houston neighborhood and punctured the tires of dozens of cars, causing about $25,000 in damage and leaving car owners fuming.

    A surveillance video shows the man walking around vehicles parked in driveways and puncturing all four tires.

    In all, at least 35 vehicles were left flattened Thursday.

    A Harris County constable's office assistant chief, Mark Herman, says 37-year-old Christopher Schreiber is in custody. He was questioned while drinking at a bar where other tires had been slashed and was arrested later after he was identified on the video.

    When arrested, he had driven his truck through a field and got stuck. Authorities say he was uncooperative and was found carrying crack cocaine in a pocket.
